What it's like to work with CoBe Capital

Darren McKenzie Chaffee, CFA, CPA
"Our core thesis is that orphaned business units tend to be starved for resources and under the ownership of a focused, entrepreneurial investor like CoBe Capital, they can achieve better results."

Ian Macdonnell
"Over the years, we have helped a lot of companies sell complex/underperforming assets and in our view, CoBe Capital’s willingness to invest the time, energy and patience to put a deal together in challenging circumstances and your sensitivity to the needs of a corporate seller are rare."
